Universal’s Dark Universe continued last July with The Invisible Man, starring Johnny Depp.
Following the disappointing critical and popular reception of Tom Cruise’s The Mummy, many took it as read that Universal’s Dark Universe franchise was deader than a non Zombie dead person. However, Johnny Depp revealed that his new adaptation of HG Wells’ classic novel The Invisible Man is not only going ahead but has already been released in early July.
Jack Sparrow (as he prefers to be know) spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec:
Yeah man, we made and then we released it. But it’s very important for me for the performance and the story and the style to all be consistent. And so I said, hey I’m playing an invisible man right? And everyone said, yes Johnny. And so I said, what if we make the film itself invisible? And everyone laughed and laughed and laughed, but then we did.
